ALIFE has held down the market in NYC for premium kicks and streetwear culture for a number of years now. Tying in all aspects of New York City’s scene from art to fashion that so often spreads through sneaker and streetwear cultures like a virus, ALIFE seems to always ride the high point of the trend curve before many companies even look up to see its existence. A good example would be the large number of brands that are aiming for a more grown-up approach, whereas ALIFE has been doing that for a number of years now.
This year’s Spring Collection from ALIFE brings the tried and true styles that seem to boldly state, “we make this look easy.” Nothing too complicated, just straight to the point designs and colorways, including two colorways of the Public Naval Leather slip-ons. Continuing with the aquatic inspirations is the Kennedy High, a boat shoe inspired high-top that comes in three suede colorways this season. The Chuck Toe silhouette combines a number of classic footwear styles into a simple canvas model. Also coming in three colorways this Spring is the Indoor High, including a Pear colored leather with perforated “A” on the side panel, and a uniquely placed suede heel patch.
